The 2015 growing season was great for a second year in a row. Bud break was three weeks ahead of ‘normal’ and the growing season maintained that lead through to harvest. The summer’s consistently hot days were followed by warm nights and just the right amount of sprinkling rain. The higher than average overnight lows allowed grapes to mature faster without putting stress on the vines, which lets the grapes come together in balance and flavor to produce an excellent wine. Yields were generous and overall quality was high across the board. The fruit for this wine was hand harvested from September 9th to September 16th, 2015.
All fruit for this wine was sourced from our Foley Family Estate Vineyard. These blocks are planted with Clones 115, Pommard and Wadenswill of Pinot Noir.
